I'm in!

No colour scheme, anything goes.

I like spicy and orangey smells.

Don't mind if decorations are traditional or modern.

No allergies.

Isaac is 3, Beatrice will be 8mo at Christmas.

Preferably secular decorations but I won't take offence at the occasional angel!

Just thought I'd bump this, in case there are any latecomers who would like to join up before catie_lou assigns people to people. Hallowe'en is gone, over, finished, which means that, a few fireworks aside, it's nearly Christmaaaaaaasssss!!!

Swappees all allocated and messages sent. They are currently in my outbox so should be with you shortly.

Just want to add I hope everyone has fun making their little gift and what ever you receive you will use for always.
